This afternoon, 10 years ago, me and my dad bullshitted the salesguy and wound up buying the Impala. Laughing Picked it up the next day and my dad drove it home, and I dont think I actually drove it myself for another 4-5 days lol.

I didnt really like her at first, I mean, we were a Ford Family dammit. But 10 years, 206,731 miles, hundreds of parts and mod receipts, and plenty of bruised knuckles later, I dont think I could let her go! Very Happy

Its been a long, strange ride, but she's been by my side without too many major issues, and maybe one day she'll get the work done to be new again haha.

I can hardly believe I've had this car over 7 years already. I think the keys are going to the wife when I buy a sportbike though.

I didnt much like it either, the sound system didnt impress me at first, and it was a column-shift, and the Tiger Paws squealed on most hard left turns. Laughing I would have loved to get an LS, but didnt have the 5k in my pocket for that. Sad

Still, she's pretty much been turned into a 04-05 LS clone, just needs a 3.8 now haha.

I did give her a present today, new tires! Rides a lot nicer and smoother now, the old ones were almost completely worn and in terrible shape due to the ports I work in.
